But it can be interfered with by other individuals, as with any criticism of private behavior. The CSJN determined that there are two spheres of conduct, that of strictly private (private ethics, the particular and personal of each) and the (689) Inter-American Court, Case of Loren Laroye Riebe Star v. Mexico, 04-13-99, paras. 95 and 96. (690) CSJN, Ponzetti de Balbín c / Editorial Atlántida S.A., 1984, 306: 1892.
partially or totally public (which can be related to public morals). Because of this, the right arises not to be disturbed when it comes to private actions. Article 19 of the CN mentions the private actions of men but completely leaves out intimate acts, both terms are not equivalent, and there is a relationship between gender (privacy) and species (intimacy). Hence, all intimate actions are private actions, but not all private actions are intimate actions (for example: expression of religious beliefs or political opinions, habits, etc.). Likewise, privacy comprises a sphere of the person that is protected from widespread knowledge (691). The CSJN has attributed different content to the right to privacy. This depended on the areas covered. Thus, two doctrines were formed. – Doctrine of interiority: privacy would include the behaviors that take root and remain in the interiority of people’s consciences (freedom of thought) and only concerns them without materializing in external acts that may affect the rights of others or that directly affect human social coexistence, public order and morality and the basic institutions in which they are based and by which, in turn, those institutions are protected for the adequate achievement of the temporal common good (692). According to this doctrine, the only actions that do not allow state interference are those that remain within the internal jurisdiction of each individual (what is thought and what is wanted), whether good or bad, they are non-juridical, but the simple exteriorization (execution) of the same makes them liable to state jurisdiction (693). Private actions, from a spatial point of view, are those carried out in a private place, while those that take place in public are potentially achievable by state authority.
